Abstract [en]

We study resource allocation in cellular systems and consider the problem of finding a power efficient scheduling in an uplink single carrier frequency division multiple access system. Due to the discrete nature of this problem and its computational difficulty, particularly in a real-time setting, the use of suboptimal algorithms is common practice. We aim at an effective way of gauging the performance of suboptimal algorithms by finding tight bounds on the global optimum. Toward this end, we first provide a basic integer linear programming formulation. Then we propose a significantly stronger column-oriented formulation and a corresponding column generation method, as well as an enhanced column generation scheme. The latter extends the first scheme through the inclusion of a stabilization technique, an approximate column generation principle, and a tailored heuristic that is embedded in the column generation scheme to find high-quality though not necessarily global optimal solutions. The computational evaluation demonstrates that compared with a poor performance by the integer linear programming formulation, the column generation method can produce near-optimal schedules that enable a sharp bounding interval. The enhanced column generation method significantly sharpens the bounding interval. Hence the column generation approach serves well for the purpose of benchmarking results for large-scale instances.

Abstract [en]

Column-oriented models are today common in the eld of discrete optimization, and there is an increasing interest in using such models as a basis for heuristic solution methods. The common theme of this work is to explore some possibilities to integrate heuristic principles and column-oriented models for discrete optimization problems.

In the rst paper, we consider a resource allocation problem for cellular systems. We propose a strong column-oriented formulation and a corresponding column generation method, as well as an enhanced column generation scheme for this problem. The enhanced scheme is composed of a stabilization technique, an approximate column generation principle, and, for nding integer solutions, a heuristic that is embedded in the column generation scheme.

The second paper provides a new and strong convexied formulation of the xed charge transportation problem. This formulation is obtained by integrating the concepts of Lagrangian decomposition and column generation. It is shown both theoretically and practically that this integration yields a formulation which is stronger than three other convexied formulations of the problem.
